Thanksgiving...

Man I love that holiday! I absolutely love love love it...why because you ALWAYS eat good, but for me, I love it because I love being around my family!

This year we took a ride down to Richmond, VA to go and see my brother JC and his family in their new 7,000 sq foot home! Yep, that's right people a 7,000 square foot home, all brick the BIGGEST thing sitting on their small country road...and get this...it only cost them about 300K to have built from the ground up...man, something like that would cost like 900K up here in DC...but anyways..

I love just sitting and talking trash with my family, laughing joking, talking about old times...we just had a ball. It was a killer getting up like I was going to work on Thanksgiving day to meet my parents and my other brother WC at my parents house, but it was worth it to ride in WC's new ride and just have a good time with the family...

My nephews are a stone cold trip...in fact my youngest nephew Daric (of JC's boys), who is ONLY 8 years old, was giving WC pointers on how to get a woman..."you know you just walk up to her, ask her her name, hold a conversation with her...and if she seems nice, then you ask for her number...once you get to know her, take her out..." So then WC asks him "well what if she rejects you or says no?" This little boy says, "well then, you move on, its ok, it just means she is NOT the one for you..."
I mean and all the while this little dude is saying all this stuff with the smoothest voice, just chill and calm...CLASSIC!

My other two nephews are equally as special...Devin is just the coolest cat...he is real quite though and stays to himself, but that just means he is picking up on EVERYTHING...

DJ is 18, dumb as a box of rocks, meaning he thinks he knows it all and knows nothing, has no respect and doesn't want to do anything out of life...everyone keeps saying I shoud take him so that he can finish school...and I would IF and ONLY IF he has no contact with his mother and them...but that's not going to happen...so at this point he knows right from wrong and he CHOSES to do wrong so its on him...

All in all it was a wonderful time...Miles wasn't there (that's my youngest nephew WC's only boy...) but me and the folks ate good, laughed hard...and just enjoyed being around each other...and that in and of itself is enough to be Thankful for!

Family getting together, great food, fun times....perfect break and I'm glad you had a great time. Daric sounds adorable. Through the eyes of a child we learn great things...shame we have to screw it all up as adults, lol.

@jac-you have to see him...he is the cutest..

@noname-family gatherings are the BEST! I had a great time...my mom is watching Miles today and I keep calling her because I feel like I am missing out....Daric is adorable...when we asked him where he got all this stuff from, he said "you know from watching TV and movies...its really not that hard to put two and two together..." so smart...if he can stay this sweet AND smooth (and rough too...he is a true blue out door little boy) he will be SO ahead of the game...
